A Proper Introduction

06/02/2011 § 3 Comments

I’ve created numerous blogs that I’ve never written in and I blame it all on one thing. The introduction. I come up with a name, pick the theme, add a picture and then go to write, and… nothing. I think introductions to blogs box you in. Right now, I can’t be boxed in.

That said, I think it’s finally time for me to properly introduce my[self] blog.

My name is Brooke, and this is Brooke Lauren’s Finest.

I have always questioned my parents logic when I comes to my name. Why not Brooke Lynn? My mom said it never even crossed their minds, so I’m embracing the Lauren.

This is not a food blog [at least I don’t think it’s going to be]. I know it doesn’t appear that way, but initially food was not my intended focus. I’ve just had food on the brain in a very serious way the past couple of months. You see, I’m waiting to hear back on a job offer that has to do with farm to cafeteria programs. It’s an amazing opportunity that would consume the next year of my life if I get it. I should know mid-June, but I’m starting to get antsy.

I just graduated from college in December. Don’t ask me my major, it’s practically worthless and I know that. When I tell people I get a funny look followed by, “What are you going to do with that?”

I got accepted to graduate school recently, but couldn’t rationalize the bill. So, that’s on hold.

I’ve since moved back home and work at a restaurant. I think it makes some of my family member’s blood-curdle. I guess I can understand some of their frustration. I’m just trying to make ends meet.

Moving back home has definitely been an interesting transition that no one really prepared me for. I really hadn’t realized how much some things had changed since I left and how many other things that stayed the same.

It’s strange in a way, [almost] every time I see someone that I know but am not close to, I these two questions:

1.) Are you married yet?                                                                                      Answer: No. Sorry to disappoint, but I’m not even close.

2.) What are your “plans”? As is, you’ve just spent the last four years in college, what in the hell are you going to do with the rest of your life? Answer: I don’t know. That’s right, I said it.

I’m getting used to it now but it’s frustrating at times.

To be quite honest… this blog has about as little focus as my future does. I’m just doing what feels right. I love photography, I love food, I love my family and friends, I love my dog, and I love not having to do homework. Those are some of the things that I know right now. I’m just trying to take it all in, and enjoy it while I can.

Simply put, this blog is just good for me right now.

So… to those of you that have subscribed, thank you! I hope you’ll stick with me as I figure things out. If I’m lucky, maybe I can help provide some inspiration along the way.

    :D
    Don’t worry, I get those two questions all of the time and I don’t really think I’m any different of you!

    I want to know your major now :P!!!

  • I had this issue with my blog, as well. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever given a proper introduction of myself to readers on my blog. Your post inspired me as I was reading to properly address them and introduce myself. I read your post on diy wine bottle uses a while back, and I loved it. Now that I’m 21, I’ve started my collection. I bought a bottle of Moscato by Castello del Poggio the other day, and it is so incredibly sweet and yummy. I think I want to use it as either a vase or a book end. :-) Happy blogging! I’ve struggled with keeping my blog focused, too, so hopefully over the summer we’ll both be able to get it in gear. Have a good week!

    I’m right there with you. Have started several blogs only to ignore them shortly after their creation. Looking forward to reading more about you!
